Former BDO star Jeffrey de Graaf was the big name to secure an automatic PDC tour card on day three of Q-School at the Robin Park Tennis Centre, in Wigan. Another former BDO star, 2008 Lakeside semi-finalist Brian Woods, also secured a tour card alongside Tony Newell and Ray Campbell.

However, de Graaf, seeded third at this year’s Lakeside World Championships, was the most high profile qualifier on day three. The 25-year-old Dutchman had struggled to make an impression in the opening days, exiting in the last 256 yesterday; nevertheless, Jeffrey’s class shone through on Friday.

De Graaf began the afternoon with a comprehensive 5-0 whitewash victory over 1996 World Matchplay winner Peter Evison in the last 512. He then edged through a deciding leg against Simon Burt in the last 256, which was the closest he came to exiting.

Jeffrey defeated Lee Shewan and Jamie Bain to reach the last 32, before recording successive 5-2 victories over Scott Dale, and former UK Open finalist Mark Walsh, to move a match away from securing a tour-card. De Graaf faced Simon Preston in the decisive clash, and secured an emphatic 5-1 win to guarantee his spot on the PDC tour until 2018.

Another former BDO man to seal an automatic tour card was Brian Woods. ‘Pecker’, who was one win away from securing an automatic tour card on the opening day, went one step further today to reclaim his card.

Woods kicked off the afternoon with a thumping 5-0 victory over Danny Dyer, before coming through a series of last-leg deciders throughout the day.

He edged past Aden Kirk and Steve Hine in deciding legs, before easing through to the last 16 by virtue of a comfortable 5-1 win over young Dutchman Joey ten Berge.The 49-year-old then defeated Nigel Daniels 5-3, before securing his tour card courtesy of his third deciding leg win of the day against Harry Robinson.

Tony Newell was another player to reclaim his tour-card. ‘The Bear’ made a confident start, dropping just one leg in beating both Matthew Hayes and Jeffrey van de Ven. Newell then eased through to the last 32, by virtue of consecutive 5-2 triumphs over Chris McTernan and Les Marson.

The 33-year-old whitewashed Matt Golding in the last 32, before overcoming Trevor Burkhill to reach the last eight. He faced John Michael for a tour-card; the Greek, who appeared at this year’s World Championships, was unable to halt ‘The Bear’s’ charge as Newell recorded a routine 5-2 win.

The fourth and final player to secure an automatic tour card was Northern Ireland’s Ray Campbell. Campbell opened up the day’s proceedings by dropping just two legs against the Dutch duo of Jeffrey Beekhuis and Ron Schouten before whitewashing Jason Marriot to reach the last 32.

Campbell’s progress to the last eight was less serene as he defeated both Marc Dewsbury and Ian Walters by virtue of deciding-legs, before he edged past Vincent Kamphuis 5-3 to secure a PDC tour card for the first time in his career.

However, it wasn’t a good day for the trio of former World finalists vying for a tour card. Two-time World finalist Peter Manley is still searching for his first victory at Q-School, after he was whitewashed 5-0 by Richie Howson.

Elsewhere, 2005 World Championship finalist Mark Dudbridge was also on the receiving end of a whitewash in the last 256 stage, as he was beaten 5-0 by Steven Smith.

Additionally, 2008 World finalist Kirk Shepherd was beaten in the last 128. After beating Jamie Kelling 5-4 in the first-round, he was dispatched 5-1 by Harry Robinson. Manley and Dudbridge’s hopes of securing a tour-card via the Q-School Order of Merit are over; their hopes rely solely on reaching the last four on Saturday’s final day.

Former World-Youth champion James Hubbard also endured a disappointing day. Hubbard was whitewashed 5-0 by Simon Cassidy in the last 512, and his hopes of securing a tour-card are now hanging by a thread. Arron Monk enjoyed a better day, but he was eventually beaten in the last 32 by Spain’s Antonio Alcinas.
